I am regularly searching for cheap VPS hosting and forgets, therefore I have written below for future reference. it’s may be helpful for you.before going to cheap let think about best and high quality:
Server location, Company Rating, Customer support, managed or Semi managed,or Unmanaged.
also, check that the company targets what kind of customers.
managed vps vs un/self managed vps
managed vps provides server level support, just like managed cloud servers.
but no application level support officially, unlike managed wordpress hosting.
self managed hosting you get a linux os, with root password.
so you can install server just like cloud services as iass digital ocean, AWS,GCP, upcloud etc.
Unmanaged vps plans by a2hosting
1cpu core 20GB storage 512 RAM 2TB bandwidth $5
2 cpu core 30GB storage 1GB RAM 2TB bandwidth
4 cpu core 50GB storage 1GB RAM 2TB bandwidth
memory should be at least 2x for cpu cores.
4cores with 1gb ram doesn’t make any sense.
most of the 90% vps plans managed by hosting providers.
Managed vps plans by a2hosting
$50 8cores 8gb ram 150gb SSD, 4tb bandwidth
$35 4 cores 4gb ram 100gb SSD ,3tb bandwidth
$25 2cores 2gb ram 75gb SSD, 2tb bandwidth.
free whm cpanel , it’s license fee $10/m for unmanaged hosting.
VPS hosting providers limits the ram so the customer can upgrade higher plan.
with cloud hosting customize the virtual machine and billed hourly .
vps hosting vs cloud hosting
sharing a dedicated server slot, virtualizing one machine to multiple machine based on available resources.
cons: when the time of peak no way to upgrade the resources unlike cloud. possibility 1%of entire server down(other vps) due to ddos attack.
vps hosting price tend to cheaper than cloud but not price effective as cloud. pay as you go. pay for what you use.
cloud hosting: hosting on virtual partition .
vps disk,ram,cpu on same machine, but in cloud in different machines /server.
the storage and computing hardware running your server are physically separated to allow improved redundancy
we can add remove disks, upgrade & down grade memory &cpu cores. we can auto scale the website by copying data automatically to multiple servers. based peak usesrs, and reduce backup servers automatically.
lot if operations inorder to scale a website /app. billing hourly.
pay as you go.
cons: it’s unmanaged cloud, but there are managed cloud servers available in the market like cloudways.
managed vps vs shared hosting
shared hosting is limited hosting.
server size 32gb ram 14cpu
100-200accounts and each account avg 5 websites.
1000websites on single server how they scale.
just by limiting sever resources.
concurrent requests or entry process.
per account if 100 total 200*100= 2000 requests/s
does this server handles!
MySQL, apache server
apache crates 1 process for 1 connection.
2000 live visitors on whole not possible.
half of processes handled by mysql .
better to move when you get 30-70 live visitors on shared server.
OR your page loads high, ttfb you cannot control (if it is more than 500ms move away).
page loading high just you are accessing static file.
readme.html or robots.txt then upgrade to vps or cloud.
repeated resources limits errors .
